Shatta Wale, Kofi Kinaata, Kuami Eugene, Others Nominated For 2019 Ghana National Gospel Music Awards
Nominees for the 2019 Ghana National Gospel Music Awards have been announced.
In a list sighted by Ghana’s Hub For Pop Culture & Urban Entertainment – www.nydjlive.com, musicians including Shatta Wale, Kofi Kinaata, Strongman, Dada Hafco, Kuami Eugene and Ras Kuuku grabbed nominations in the newly introduced Hybrid Category .
According to Peter Kwabena Dwobeng, CEO of Global Expert Recovery Ltd, organizers of the Ghana National Gospel Music Awards, the newly created category ‘Hybrid Gospel Song of the Year’ is meant to reward musicians who are known for all other genres except Gospel music but produced a material worth categorizing as Gospel music in the year under review.
As controversial as the newly introduced Hybrid Category may sound, it was announced during the launch of the 2019 Ghana National Gospel Music Awards.
The introduction of the said category has been met with varying opinions with people trashing it whereas others applaud the initiative.
Unlike the maiden and second editions, the 3rd edition of the Ghana National Gospel Music Awards (NGMA) would see the voting academy wield 60% voting power whereas the general public wields a 40% voting power.
Public voting will done strictly via the award’s website.
Gospel musician Nacee believes it is too early for the awards scheme which is in its third year to introduce such a category.
